He said the members of the party’s military wing include himself, Lt General Theophillus Yakubu Danjuma, General Olusegun Obasanjo, General Aliyu Mohammed, among others.

Speaking on Saturday while receiving report of the Senator Ahmed Makarfi committee on “strategy and inter party Affairs” led by professor Jerry Gana at his uphill residence, Minna Niger state, IBB declared, “We are the military wing of PDP, we took a lot of interest in the PDP.”

The former military president who likened the party at the formative stage Irish Republican Army said members of the wing took a special interest in the affairs of the PDP.

“I termed us IRA military wing of PDP; I thank God we came up with the concept that PDP should rule for 60 years,” he noted.

General Babangida also restated his believe that a two party system of government is still the best option for Nigeria, stressing that it provides a choice for the people.
